For most of us, the day we marry is one of the most important days of our entire life. But running a close second is the day of our engagement, when a proposal is made and accepted, and a couple begins planning their future life together. Whether yours seems near or far, there’s no reason not to plan ahead!
Tips from Carriage Greens C.C.
Your engagement is often something you want to share and celebrate with your friends, and if you do, here are four basic tips for planning the perfect engagement party.
Pick a location – When making plans for your engagement party, it is our hope that you’ll think first of Carriage Greens and our superb Lemont, IL wedding venue where for decades we’ve been helping couples begin their life’s journey together.
Consider a theme – A creative theme can take your engagement party to the next level, and you might take a cue from the season. For example, if you’re thinking of the spring 2021, a springtime theme featuring life coming back into glorious, full bloom might be considered.
Compile your guest list – Your engagement party can range from a small, intimate gathering to a huge bash. At Carriage Greens, we can handle either one or anything in between, but just make sure all invited to the party are also invited to the wedding.
Plan the menu – The menu can be anything from hors d’oeuvres to a buffet or a seated meal. Whatever your choice, we’ll provide you and your guests with superb cuisine prepared for the occasion under the direction of our Executive Chef, Joel Droba.
With these steps, you are well on your way to a fabulous engagement party, and at Carriage Greens we can’t wait to host you at our beautiful Lemont, IL wedding venue.
